RE: How to save the iptables rules for booting?

But that would be just like running /etc/init.d/iptables. But what we
need is running the command '/etc/init.d/iptables start'. 

I tried to make a link with the start parameter like 

>ln -s /etc/init.d/iptables '/etc/rcS.d/S38iptables start'

But the above also doesn't run it the way we want it to run. The only
inefficient method I came up with is making a shell script called
iptables-boot that runs the command '/etc/init.d/iptables start' inside
it, and making a symbolic link to this file in the rcS.d. This does work
fine, but I feel it's very unprofessional and must be better ways to do
this. Is it? Please advice.

Actually, calling  '/etc/init.d/iptables start'  will be the same as
'load active'.
So you just need a standard symlink in /etc/rc?.d/S05iptables ->

Then to save your rules (as im guessing you already did) just manually
/etc/init.d/iptables save

I know the script /etc/init.d/iptables can be used to save the rules.
I made it save in the 'active' rule set. But what is the standard way
to run '/etc/init.d/iptables load active' at boot time. I manually
added a symbolic link to the /etc/rcS.d folder for
'/etc/init.d/iptables load active', and it works, but still is there a
more user friendly way for that in Debian? If not, please also let me
know if the manual way I used is reasonable, since I am new to Linux?
